Angie Bongiolatti

Dawson explores the work and play lives of a group of young New Yorkers.

Eltingville Club #1

Eltingville Club #1
by Evan Dorkin

Amongst comics nerds in the know, Dorkin's Eltingville Club is the stuff of legend. It's kind of like Big Bang Theory - but for the sort of people that Big Bang Theory exploits and mocks.

Lumberjanes #1

Lumberjanes #1
by Noelle Stevenson / Grace Ellis / Brooke A. Allen

The first issue of a new limited series, Lumberjanes is sort of Buffy The Vampire Slayer at a Girl Scout camp.
